UFC star Conor McGregor came into conflict with an angry Dagestani man during a press conference in Moscow.

Video footage is circulating on social media of the event.

The Dagestani is heard in the video calling out McGregor on his comments of Dagestani people, eventually leading to the man throwing a bottle of water at McGregor to which McGregor managed to dodge.
